On the top of this post is the video trailer posted on the movie's website.
Among Jonas' pupils was Robert McClellan, a recovering addict and alcoholic who married a National Geographic documentary producer, Jill Heinerth. About five years ago, the couple came to Delray from their home near Ocala so that McClellan could learn the nuances of addiction counseling from Jonas and psychotherapist Jeannie Saros. After a four-day crash course, they headed back north, but not before McClellan and Heinerth decided that KoffeeOkee -- and the entire addiction community in Delray Beach -- deserved documentary treatment.
The film's premiere is happening at the coffeehouse Sunday at 9:30 for the general public, as well as a second showing possible for 11. There are two earlier showings -- one for friends and family at 2, another for media and invited guests at 4.
